The Fosters Way

The Trade News observed in 1995: ‘Foster Construction had its beginnings in Morrinsville in the 1950s, moved to Hamilton in the 1960s and has been writing its signature on Hamilton and parts of the Waikato ever since.’

The Fosters story begins in the post-war era when, like many others, small family businesses took on the challenge of building their local communities, ensuring that the needs of future generations would be met and contributing to the growth in industry and enterprise of regions such as the Waikato.

Today we are proud to be an award-winning, iconic Waikato brand; an industry leader in sustainable development, design and build. And part of a broader conversation around the shaping of communities.

Foster Construction Ltd began building schools and soon moved on to hospitals, warehouses, office blocks, university lecture theatres, performing arts centres and much more. One of the most celebrated buildings is the Claudelands Events Centre in Hamilton.

We earn trust and develop partnerships

Years of collaborating with many stakeholders and creating joint venture companies have driven Fosters to be more than just a building company. Since the very beginning, specific fundamental values have provided a pathway for how Fosters chooses to operate in the community it serves.

We believe that with success comes responsibility, so we continue to build on our legacy through meaningful contribution, employee empowerment, purposeful business alliances, and sustainable building practice.
